New senior center at the Belfast Boathouse is providing entertainment for senior citizens

BELFAST - Belfast is celebrating its senior citizens with a new program designed just for them!

The Belfast Boathouse is now hosting a "Senior Center" where elderly citizens can enjoy games, music, and the company of those their age.

 

It's open every Tuesday from 10a.m. to 2 p.m., and while this week was only its second meeting, more than twenty people showed up to be a part of the celebration.

 

Parks and Rec director, Norm Poirier said "The City of Belfast does care about all ages and not just youth with education funding or middle aged population with all the activities, but also the senior age."

 

The senior center is hoping to use the Belfast Boathouse until they can find a more permanent position this summer.
